A friend posted a story from Vancity Buzz today about Japanese consumer goods retailer MUJI entering the Canadian market. “MUJI” derived from “Mujirushi Ryohin” which translates as “no-brand quality goods” will begin their Canadian operations with Toronto in mid-December 2014. Vancouver is sure to follow making this big news for anyone here who likes creative, well-designed, well-made products with zero brand-labelling.

After reading both the Vancity Buzz article and one from the Globe and Mail, I thought I would do more research and see what else MUJI has to offer. Below is some interesting stuff I came upon.
